Can you go a day without caffeine?
I can but I choose not to. I love a good cuppa.
Who knows more about you than anyone else?
It would have to be my Hubby…we’ve been together a long time. Although there are times I think he doesn’t know me at all!
What song did you last listen to?
I had the Tom Odell album on whilst cutting fabric the other day…that boy can write a song!
Do you have a crush on anybody?
Benedict Cumberbatch and Tim Minchin are on the list of people who make my heart go pitter pat at present.
Do you like The Beatles?
Yes, yes, yes!! I had a girly trip to Liverpool a few years ago, and it was so amazing! I did go all fan girly !

Turquoise…I am drawn to it whenever I’m clothes shopping.
Do you cook often?
Yes. I love to cook and bake. I own a lot of cookbooks!
What film did you last see, and did you enjoy it?
At the pictures I saw Frozen with my daughter. It was beautiful and funny and the music was wonderful.
Can you sew?
Yes! I made my Wedding Dress and am currently engaged in a Quilting project and have recently bought an overlocker.
What is your favourite fruit?
I don’t eat a lot of fruit, although I do use berries as ingredients in cakes. Bananas are probably the fruit I buy most except during Wimbledon when Strawberries are a must eat.
Are you health conscious?
Not especially. I try and make sure I have a balanced diet, and I have fits and starts with exercise.

I’ve never drunk one. I’m pretty much teetotal.

Wine Gums are my guilty pleasure…I prefer them to chocolate. When I see Macarons I have to have some… They are on my list if things to have a try at.
What was the last book you purchased?
The Flavour Thesaurus. It tells you what flavours go together, and is just fascinating.

We had 4 days in a cottage in York as a family last year which was wonderful. My son is at Uni, so it was nice to spend time away all together.

At the moment it’s Frozen. But Beauty and the Beast is good too.

At the moment it is Pharrell’s Happy… It makes me want to dance.
